Denver International Airport, Colorado

SENER provided engineering services to the Design & Build contractor for the renovation of the Jeppesen Terminal’s Great Hall of Denver International Airport, one of the busiest airports and airline hubs in the United States. The project consists of a complete re-arrangement and renovation of levels 5 and 6 of the 1.5M sq ft Jeppesen Terminal, which handled 54 Mpax in 2015 and 69 Mpax in 2019.
